My boss has been awarded a Royal Society Research Professorship!

The blurb for the fellowship says: "This scheme is for world-class scientists who would benefit from a period of long-term support to allow them to focus on research and collaboration based at an institution in the UK." Appointments are made for up to ten years (usually the full amount).

And my boss said:
“I am very excited to have been awarded a Royal Society Research Professorship,” said Professor Dougherty. “It will enable me to focus on the fantastic science which my instrument onboard Cassini will produce during the final 3 years of orbit around Saturn, as well as plan the instrument design and science we will do with the JUICE mission to orbit Ganymede, Jupiter’s largest moon.”


[PS Her appointment brings the grand total of female persons currently holding an RS Research Professorship to three (out of 17).]

Not directly, no, other than it means my boss will be in a good mood for quite a while! Indirectly, the support for her means that the group should be stronger and more stable. It already was, but this makes it even better.
